I am using a Nokia 2730 connected via bluetooth, and Nokia PC Suite. I can send / receive text messages and sync content... But i cant use it to connect to the internet - any idea how this could work?

Make sure in Nokia PC suite under settings you have selected Telecom NZ as the carrier or it might be trying to connect with another APN

Problem is it doesn't let me get that far, it wont find the modem when i click on the internet option. It can't (or wont) find the modem within the nokia device... Nokia (and Telecom) have confirmed the device is capable, but the limited advice simply won't help.

What does device manager say on your PC?

Have you tried manually installing the Nokia Modem drivers?

Sounds like it hasnt completely installed all the drivers. When I pair with bluetooth I get a lot of things installing at once, sometimes some of them fail and I have to go to device manager and update driver on them.

Im up to com103 now that I have moved the BT dongle and phones between hubs so many times.

If you have both cable and bluetooth configured, pc suite seems to get a little confused. I stick with cable now that I have it working.
